The problem of balancing an assembly line has been facilitated by a number of analytic methods for which computer programs are available. The feasibility of using the variable element time balancing algorithm was investigated in reference to the task of setting up an assembly line type operation for the reconditioning of units which are disassembled, repaired, and returned to inventory and subsequent use.
